If trick-or-treating isn’t your thing, join us a screening of Tim Burton’s 1993 classic animated film.

Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington – the Pumpkin King – longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere.

Rated PG, the movie is recommended for ages 8 and up.
